    BrotherAdso's Note:

    Just what it sounds like. I'm a bit of a health nut, but when I was a kid, I loved hot chocolate. This isn't Belgian Dark Hot Chocolate of Sumptuous Death, but it's way better than a mix, almost as easy, and way more, it's as high quality as the ingredients you use. The cornstarch thickens it wonderfully without altering the flavor, trust me. Plus, with a bit more cornstarch, it can become a killer pudding.

    1. 1
      Mix the cornstarch and cold water. Set it at your side.
    2. 2
      Whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, and milk over low heat.
    3. 3
      Raise the heat can continue whisking, adding the vanilla and your chosen options.
    4. 4
      Slowly add the cornstarch mixture, raise heat just a bit more, and whisk vigorously until the mixture becomes nice and creamy.
    5. 5
      Options I recommend: Cinnamon and nutmeg for spiced hot chocolate, cinnamon and chili powder for Mexican hot chocolate, almond extract and Kahlua for amaretto, mint leaves and Bailey's for creamy mint hot chocolate -- the possibilities are endless.

      I tried this tonight with some cinnamon and, after seeing that it (the addition of the cinnamon) wasn't so bad, I got brave and added just a pinch of chili powder. Again, not bad. I was surprised. As for the base recipe, I felt the cocoa flavor was way too strong in proportion to the sugar, resulting in an overly bitter unsweetened cocoa taste. So, I added about another tablespoon of sugar to the already made hot chocolate. (It mixed in really well since the chocolate was so hot.) I felt it was much better that way. And I thought the texture was really nice. Thanks!
